This is the basis for everything I think and do in regards to nutrition. I am totally inspired by Gabriel and want to get my Masters degree in Vegan and Live-Food Nutrition at his center in Arizona.
Becoming a vegetarian, eating certain foods, or fasting is not going to lead you instantly to enlightenment. Awakening the Kundalini, reaching enlightenment, examining ones spirituality are paths that can take lifetimes worth of work or can spontaneously occur through grace. With that said, there are certain things that you can do that can facilitate the process.

Spiritual Nutrition sets out six foundations that help purify the system and ease the natural progress of one’s spirituality: nutrition
This book was not what I thought it would be. It covers so many interesting topics around meditation, body energies, shakras, etc, that it doesn't go into any one topic very well. I was hoping for some dietary guidance, but realized that this book was WAY OUT THERE. If you're interested in any of these new age concepts, I would recommend getting a book on just that concept. I did not finish this one, nor do I have any plans to do so.
One of the most amazing and truly holistic discussions of nutrition I have ever come across. Shaped the trajectory of my raw foodist journey forevermore.
A must have for all integrated wellness practitioners and enthusiasts!!

The reason I rated this book with 4 stars is because in almost any page the author make reference about the kabbalistic religion and customs in a way that sets the reader away from the title of the book (spiritual nutrition, not religious). Plus, it's a bit "new-agey"..

Another reason is because of how the author chooses to talk about the psychoactive substances, mentions them altogether in the same category. There are Sacred Plants the importance of which is recognised since thousands of years f

I've been using it as a reference book, not a cover to cover book. Very interesting and of course makes complete sense to look at the way we nourish ourselves.

“In the process of assimilation, the crystalline vibration of food interacts with our total oscillating crystalline system. Anyone familiar with the science of kinesiology (muscle testing) knows that when a specific food substance is brought within the body's vibratory field, it may immediately weaken, strengthen, or not appreciably affect the person.” 0 likes
“Using this same principle, we can also use specific gems or gem elixirs to energize and rebalance the individual chakras. Dark opal and tiger's eye help to rebalance the base chakra. Fire agate works on the second chakra. The solar plexus and third chakra are aided by quartz and pearl. Ruby and emerald stimulate the heart chakra. Lapis lazuli is good for the throat chakra. Quartz resonates with both the pituitary and pineal glands, or sixth and seventh chakras. Diamond is beneficial for the crown chakra.18” 0 likes
